I don't get all the rave reviews. My husband and I had dinner here in July 2014. I ordered the eggplant parm and he had the linguine w/clam sauce. Average at best. Eggplant was stringy and undercooked in some spots.The staff is very nice and attentive tho. The mgr or owner, whichever he is, came around to the tables to... More

Words cannot express how wonderful this restaurant is! We were in town for a very large softball tournament. We stopped by first for lunch - three families, arriving at different times. Not only did the staff accommodate us and our separate orders, but they did so with a smile. After a long day at the field, we wanted to get... More

We first stopped in for a small lunch early afternoon after we had checked into our hotel. Their were three families that had walked in at different times and the staff was very accommodating.

Buon Appetito had to struggle to open, it had to struggle to get it's liquor license, and it's had to overcome some really bad feelings from the local community. But over the last few years, it has managed to overcome all those issues and created a very nice restaurant that has been accepted by the local community. Our friends and... More

This restaurant was fabulous and the service was top-notch. They arranged a dinner for 31 of us while my son's soccer team played in RI for regionals. The food was amazing!

This was my third and undoubtedly my last visit to Buon Appetito. First visit was for lunch and it was delicious. Second visit was with family for dinner and again very good. This visit was again for dinner and it was terrible. We called for reservations on the off chance we could get in. They did accommodate us even though... More

My wife and I dined here on June 5 and were pleasantly surprised by the excellent service and food. We both started with cocktails and stuffed clams (sausage and spinach) as an appetizer. I opted for shrimp scampi over Linguine and my wife ordered a chicken piccata over Rigatoni dish. Both were cooked to perfection. We enjoyed the entire meal... More

My husband and I decided to go away to CT for our 1 year anniversary weekend. Our server, Karen, was very knowledgeable about the menu having gluten free recommendations. Very good food and nice ambiance.

One of our favorite places to go right in town. The owners and staff are very friendly and treat everyone like family. We've been to BA as we call it with large groups or just two us enjoying dinner at the bar. Missy and Karen are the best. Service with a smile! The choice of wines is outstanding and Martinis...
